Iván Fischer            conductor

Beethoven      Symphony No. 1 in C Major, Opus 21
Beethoven      Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Opus 58

Beethoven       Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Opus 67

Maestro Fischer invited 36 students from New England Conservatory to perform with the orchestra for the final movement. What an amazing opportunity for these very talented students!

Many of us braved the blizzard conditions to attend this performance. We were well rewarded with a glorious, rich experience!

The Café at Symphony Hall was very busy before the performance and during intermission. We enjoyed the euphoria of attending the concert despite hazardous weather conditions.

NY Times Michael Cooper reviews 2 performances at Lincoln Center. He also writes that Maestro Fischer has become known as a voice of tolerance and inclusion. He has taken his orchestra to play in abandoned synagogoues in Hungarian towns whose Jewish populations were killed off in WWII. Click
